Playa Dorado


Juan Ferrer was a coastal freighter laid down by Astilleros Neptuno in Valencia, and was launched in 1956 for the Spanish  company Tusset Ferrer in Valencia. She was sold in 1958 to Naviera Ciudadelana and renamed Playa Dorado. She was decommissioned a few years later, and deliberately rigged down and scuttled as an artificial reef in Palma Bay in 1991. The wreck rest today standing on her keel like a classic Donald Duck wreck on a depth of 17 to 28 meter outside Portopi in Palma Bay.
